Episode Summary

Killing Time
"Killing Time": With its own zip code, almost 6,000 inmates, and more than 1500 staff members who walk through its gates every morning, a typical day in San Quentin is anything but typical. Boredom reigns supreme for prisoners who spend endless hours, days and months confined to their cells. But some have devised creative ways to pass the time. One inmate is creating a wall mural, but not with real art supplies. He's fashioned brushes out of his own hair and mixed ink, shampoo and toothpaste to make paint. Another, whose daily high point is a cell-made cup of coffee, relieves the boredom by cutting himself with his own fingernails. And personal hygiene is a challenge. In order to avoid the chaos of the group shower, many inmates take "bird baths" in their cells. But the water they use creates a hazard for guards and inmates alike as it flows out of the cells and across the floor.moreless
